Early Review of 'Outcasts'
Beehivecity.com previews BBC One’s - and BBC America's - sci-fi saga 'Outcasts'. I'd say the article contains some spoilers (particularly in the case of Jamie's character, Mitchell Hoban). If you, thus far, have read nothing about the series and wish to remain spoiler free, then I would recommend skipping the article. The writer, Adam Sherman, also provides some new information about the plot and fleshes out the rest of the characters a bit more.


In a smart move, Jamie Bamber, (Lee Adama in Battlestar Galactica) is cast as Mitchell Hoban, Head of the Expeditionaries. He certainly isn’t happy about something and his decision to go off in a sulk and incite a rebellion is the focus of the opening episode.

I really posted just so I could use this icon. But I can def. understand why Jamie said he limited his involvement b/c it was too BSG like. I have a sneaky feeling he might be one-and-done on this one (esp. with that article ending).

So Jamie is not in all the episodes?

Well, he talks about his "limited arc" here and it occurs to me that he was more definitive than I realized about his involvement, it seems now. So, spoilerphobes beware.

On IMDB, it says :'Outcasts (TV series) – Episode #1.1 (2011)" so yes, i guess we'll only see him on the first episode...
"a Galactica-style storyline"...yes, that's what i thought i first....shame that we won't see him in all episodes but i can understand why he only did 1 episode.... :-)
after saying that, i can't hardly wait to watch the episode :-)

thanks for the news. I knew that he's going to be only in the first one but i'm still sort of disappointed because it was confirmed once more. but maybe it going to work out better like this. last year he has very busy so who knows what this year is going to bring.... i still hope for some new information.

even with Jamie in only one of the eight parts I'll still probably watch the whole thing when I'll get my hand on it.

I'll likely watch the whole thing too. I'm a long time sci-fi fan and like others in the cast. I understand why he opted to take a smaller role. It is similar to BSG and he wouldn't want to stat getting typecast since he managed to avoid it after BSG wrapped.

I totally agree on both counts. seems like a good carrier choice not be trapped in the same type of role (even if that means that we see him less) and a similar thing to what you say about Outcast happened to me with LOUK. I would of watched it anyway because is L&O and is hard to remember a time when i didn't watched something at least related to that franchise. having him there as an added bonus :)

Erm... the article make it sound like Jamie's character is pretty major in the pilot? But reading the comments here, I get the feeling he's not a regular in this series? If that's the case, my interest in Outcaste dwindles significantly. I would watch the pilot though simply because Jamie is in it. Does anyone have any idea when the series is scheduled to premier?

I'll refer you back to this post for the scoop on Jamie's limited appearance. As for a premiere date, nothing official, but it could be as soon as February, depending on how many Primeval episodes BBCA airs for the current season.

Thank you dear! I sure missed that post. It makes perfect sense now 'coz I was wondering how Jamie was going to star in *two* series simultaneously given now his L&O:UK has really picked up steam, and I doubt he'll quit that anytime soon. :)
